    Hi Everyone

    Its 8:20pm in Perth and just sitting down to do some more work after working a full day in the office, coming home and making dinner, doing a load of washing, looking after DD (not a chore - the best part of the day!) etc etc so thought I'd log in and say hi.

    Bereca - glad to hear the bleeding has stopped.

    Pash - welcome and fingers crossed your stay is short.

    Hope you all had a good day and for those of you that are around "o" time that it was caught.

    Nat

    Tempus- It's amazing that you know what your follicles are up to. Such tiny little things that have the potential to bring enormous happiness! I really hope that this one gets hit by a good strong swimmer!!

    Hi Pash, it is nice to meet you. Sorry for the loss of your angel bubs, I hope that your journey here is a swift one. Same to Seenabeena-sorry I forgot to say hi on my last post- the computer was sooooo slow, it took forever to type that small paragraph. Welcome.

    Right, guys, I really need some help here! I am on CD11 now and it will soon be time to BD. The last 2ww was totally mad. I was just nuts/ hyper/ manic/ mental for 14 days. Then I came down to earth with a big THUD and a BFN. Any suggestions for staying calm? Please? I dont think I can cope with that again.
    Thanks in advance!

    Just wanted to leave some

    Stopping in to say hey ladies! I haven't had enough time to read through the threads but as soon as I do I'll make more meaningful contributions. Everyone breathe and focus...happy bding to those in that portion of the month...happy thoughts to those in the mist of TWW...sticky vibes to those finally conceived...my sympathies to the ones going through the heartache of loss...

    Still BD'ing and hoping.

    What does "arvo" mean? I've seen it on some threads from time to time.

    berecca623: still wishing you all the best

    mollycat: good luck at the gyno's

    Canary: I have a relaxation CD I swear by. Unfortunately, it came in a kit with a bunch of other things, so you can't buy it standalone. But I know there's other tapes and cd's that guide you through a progressive relaxation.

    tempus: arvo means afternoon!!!
    pash: welcome, hope none of us are here for long..

    well, i saw my SIL last night, for the first time since that terrible day 3 months ago when she announced her pregnancy 2 days after my D&C.
    i spent all afternoon crying, trying to get all the tears out of the way so i didnt cry when i saw her (silly, i know, but you gotta do what you gotta do!)
    well, i saw her and she is looking very pg, and all i could do was stare at her belly and think that should have been me...i know thats not healthy but i cant get those thoughts out of my mind, i feel like she has taken what should have been mine...

    Oh Tina, it's an awful feeling when you feel like everyone else is getting what they want and your not. :hugs: I wish I had some real words of wisdom, but all I can do is tell you the way I feel. The way I view my mc is that it just wasn't my time yet, for some reason the universe decided that it wasn't meant to be, but I'm certain my time will come when everything falls into place the way it should. Maybe try to view it not that your SIL has taken what should have been yours, but it was just her time. She deserves her time too doesn't she? It might be that next time she TTC she ends up in the place we are right now, and we really wouldn't wish that on anyone. I am sure that your time will come very soon. All you can do in the meantime is try look after yourself and prepare your body as best you can so that you can have a happy and healthy pg. And remember, try to suck in those vibes whilst you are around her!!

    Canary - I always think a project is good way to take your focus off TTC, obsess over something else for a while! Maybe redecorating a room, painting a feature wall, creating a new garden bed?? Anything that you have been wanting to do for a while but just never gotten around to?

    Tina - it must have been so hard to see your SIL - the fact that she was so insensitive during your time of grief and coupled with her being so close in weeks to your pregancy makes it doubly tough. It is only natural to feel upset when you see her stomach, but just know that your time with come. I think losing a baby, really allows us the grace of knowing how much we want to be mothers and how thankful we will be when it does finally happen. Your time will definitely come.

    Canary - I decided that during the TWW I would not allow myself to think about it too much. I also decided that I would not even consider testing until after my period was late. I basically convinced myself that AF was on its way, so then when it was late I was given a nice surprise. I think I convinced myself of this to avoid the disappointment. It worked for me...and to be honest the TWW went fairly quickly. If you are not as much of a dooms day as me, then a project is a great idea.

    Well DH mentioned that our friends who are due 2 weeks after Nathaniel would have been, want to catch up next weekend. I have only seen her once at DH's birthday and besides saying hello and a hug I avoided her. It is not that I am resentful, I am in fact very happy for them, but it has just been to hard for me. So they will be in Melbourne, and I told DH (he was lovely and said he wanted to talk it over with me - as he knows how tough I find seeing her) that we can catch up with them for lunch or something. They don't seem to want to stay with us so that is good - I think I would find that too difficult. I really don't want to put any extra pressure on myself at the moment. Tina - I will use your bravery as my inspiration.

    Berecca - how are things with you? Glad to hear that the bleeding has stopped. It is so awful when that happens, because we are already worried to begin with. Take care.

    sorry guys, i seem to be hogging the board with my issues today!
    Apart from my SIL issues (thanks to all those with kind words re that!) i have another issue...

    according to all indicators, its "o" time soon, and the issue is that im really not in the mood for BD. i desperately want to concieve this month so i can have a december baby (my bday is in Dec), however im feeling too down in the dumps to get into trying with DH.

    Any suggestions of how to cheer myself up and "get into the mood"?!?!

    Ohhh DH would kill me if he saw me on the computer on our holidays....lucky he s at the doctors and not here

    Had to post for Canary

    Breath Girl

    I m in the second week of the 2ww. Probably about the 5th 2ww i ve done.

    My theory is this.

    We do everything we can, everything from Temps through to herbs, acupunture.... whatever.... the list goes on. From there, its not in our hands. I know it sound stupid...... but what will be will be! If there is a little soul out there wanting to make the journey to this world, they will come. (i know that steps partially into my personal belief system... but your beliefs dictate how you act and think and feel in this world)

    So for me, I look at my little angels..... They sat up there and said.... lets go to her...... they came down, looked around..... this world scared them and they left. Now they are up above waiting on me to go up to see them.

    So for me, I joke in the 2ww Thread, saying...."dont mind me i'm just sitting over here on my seat in the corner" but pretty much that is what I m doing. I ve done everything I can. I even managed to not fight with DH allll they way through "o" so now I sit back and just wait until Monday......BUT Monday is not in my mind..... if that makes sense. Every normal day to day thing is on my mind.... work, DH, dinner, work, washing.... NORMAL exciting stuff. Its very delibrate. If on Monday I POAS and its Neg... then fine..... I just go around again. If I POAS and its Pos..... then I fall over in complete disbelief.... jump on here and tell everyone.

    I will say it again.... I m sure you must all be getting sick of it.....

    ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AngelBabies -that is a lovely way to look at how our babies come to us and why sometimes they go away. I am of a similar belief, and believe that one day I will have the very great pleasure of holding Nathaniel. In fact I expect him to be waiting for me. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    Tina - well I guess it is difficult to make yourself be in the mood. Maybe you just need to decide how much you want to be trying this month, and then go for it. It doesn't have to be all romance and dimmed lights....in fact I am a great believer that when knowingly TTC it is best to keep it casual and fun. Also, I think that men have such issues about 'being made to perform' (even though normally they would have no objections) that you need to ensure that your DH doesn't think you are forcing yourself to do BD. Maybe just focus on what a great relationship you have with your DH and go from there. He sounds like he has been supportive, so maybe think of this as a way of staying close to him, rather than looking at it as a means to conceive. Does that make sense?

    Having said that....since O for me, I totally went off BD and have been ever since! Poor DH it looks like it will be a long 9 months for him

    Well - I'm out for this month. Temp took a big dip this morn and af starting. Am really fine about it this month because I said if it didn't happen then it was for good reason as I start clomid this cycle so I figure my hormones do really need that helping hand.

    Here Here Angel babies: one day at a time. I almost feel like I need to send you money for your words of wisdom; much more helpful and inspiring than that psychologist I paid $130 and hour just to make me feel like I was nuts!?!??!? Keep enjoying your break!

    Tempus - good luck catching the egg this month.

    Anyone else I have missed will catch up later.

    Hi ladies, just thought I'd post in here because I'm having a bit of a panic attack.

    I'm 8DPO today and although I know I should be posting this in the TWW thread, I just thought I could ask here. As I said I'm 8DPO today and I've got a fair amount of brown spotting. Yesterday I had pinky/brown streaks, then nothing, so I didn't worry about it - about 10pm last night, I started brown spotting, thinking that it was normal... Now, I've got a heap of brown spotting (and Watery/Creamy CM) and I KNOW I'm not due for at LEAST a week! Help?!

    Default back again...

    hey girls

    i had to have a break from TTC and this whole thing for a week or so but now I'm back and trying to catch up with all of you- feels like it's been a lot longer than a week with all the news around here!

    firstly berecca i am so so happy for you! i was reading your posts about how you were feeling a bit down about your DH's reaction....god i still think we are married to the same man! mine is so similar in the way he handles things...we really deserve a medal for being so patient and understanding!anyway i am sending lots of for you and am glad to hear that little bit of bleeding has settled. you really deserve a happy and stress free pregnancy so fingers crossed it all goes well for you

    congrats also to brockstar and for you too

    to everyone else it will take me so long to catch up so welcome to anyone new and hello to everyone else, hope everyone is well

    well i had a breakdown/breakthrough last week....thought i could get away from this miscarriage without really dealing with it but it came back and got me last week after AF arrived...i cried and carried on so much and DH was wonderful...he did confiscate my thermometer though and that was pretty scary at first but then it was like a huge weight came off my shoulders....i am still quietly counting my cycle days but i really feel like i don't have to rush anymore...it might take a year or two but i will have a baby eventually!

    anyway once again a big hello and big for all of you ladies, look forward to catching up on everyone's news.

    Default Thanks ladies for such a warm welcome

    Starryskay & Beaksie - *yay* congrats! I'm so glad to see you two UTD.

    Tina It is natural to feel what you do about your SIL's PG. If it helps, it will get easier with time. And maybe you'll be PG together after all. And advice for BDing... are you sure you want to go there?

    Canary About the TWW, I'd say definitely keep busy. Do something/lots of things so fun/intensive that you don't even get a chance to stop and think. I like all of Jodsan's ideas! Only can you come redecorate my place?

    TempusHiya! Arvo = Afternoon. I guess it's an Australianism

    Katie I'm glad DH is so lovely and supportive. And congratulations!

    LJ Sounds like implantation?!

    Congrats Xmugins!

    *waves* at everyone else.

    I'm just looking forward to when we can BD I think I O at my friends wedding. Or maybe the day after, which is when we fly from the Gold Coast to London.... So I may have to convince DH to join the mile high club if we want things to happen this cycle otherwise, might be waiting till next cycle to ttc properly.
